If researchers’ recent discoveries are believed, then they have discovered some reliable predictors of pain and soon we can conclude some effective ways to help treat pains no matter how severe they are.
The findings have come from the researchers from Mount Sinai School of Medicine, who are claiming to have identified reliable predictors of pain from the survey they ran over the patients throughout their hospital stays by noticing thoroughly about their severity of pains and how much satisfied were they after their pain was managed by the hospital staff.
With the help of the gathered data, interdisciplinary teams identified the patients at higher risk for pain and immediately started treating them followed by their implement intervention plans that learnt lower levels of pain and higher levels of satisfaction being reported by affected patients with their pain management.
The above study is published online in the American Journal of Medical Quality. "While the factors that predict patients likely to experience higher levels of pain may not be surprising, we were able to show that awareness of and targeted responses to those factors decrease pain and increase patient satisfaction”, said Mr. David L. Reich, MD, Professor and Chair of Mount Sinai's Department of Anesthesiology and lead author of the study.
He added that taking an interdisciplinary approach to pain management can help improve the patient experience a lot.
